Since I have not blogged in weeks, I thought I'd post a little Sunday Social, to try to get me back into the swing of things!
This Weeks Questions:
1. Biggest Middle school fashion mistake:
Oh gosh! I had these paisley stirrup pants in crazy colors, and I wore them with this giant oversized button-down shirt. Both were from Limited Too (remember that store!? does it still exist?) and I thought they were the coolest ever. Pretty sure they weren't. I also cut bangs in 8th grade, and that was just a bad idea.
2. Who were your best friends in high school?
Renee, Susan, Claudia and Stephanie.
3. What was a typical weekend like for you in high school?
Let's see...I baby-sat a lot, and had a job at the local health club. I also volunteered at a local thrift shop with Renee. I went to football and hockey games sometimes, that sort of things, hung out with friends. The usual.
4. Did you have any boyfriends/girlfriends? Tell us about that.
Not really, no. I really didn't date in high school.
5. Did you have any secret codes with your friends? Spill your secrets!
In middle school, my friend Erika and I made up a few words, haha. In high school, nothing really. We passed notes in classes, and between classes, and had silly jokes, but nothing that sticks out to me now, all these years later ;)
I don't want to post any photos, as I don't want to post without friends permission, and most of them don't know about my blog!

Several weeks ago, my friend Elizabeth came over one Saturday afternoon for a craft project. I saw this on pinterest, pinned it, and sent her the link immediately, declaring that we must do it that very weekend. Quite possibly my fastest pin made ever ;)
That Saturday morning, we met at a DC mall that has a Bed, Bath and Beyond. We found a coupon for the stemless wine glasses, and with that, two boxes of four each were $10! Wooo! Elizabeth had bought the paint the weekend prior, from Michaels. We used Q-tips to do the dotting, and did little color themes for each, and they were so much fun to make!
We took a break for snacks. Snacks make everything better. I've been really into olive plates lately....so, green olives, black olives, mozzarella and mini gherkins! Oh, and cheese and smoked sausage, of course.
The finished product!
We forgot to buy the spray to coat them, but I bought some the next day.
As you may notice, some of the dots are a bit smeared, but that just adds character, right?
These were so much fun to make, and now I can say that I made them myself if someone is over and asks me where I got my wine glasses :)
Also, I'm linking up with AP's Hey! That's Pintastic today, so go have a look at some of the other fun things people are creating today!
Any crafts for you lately?

Have you heard about Julep yet? It's a monthly service along the lines of Birchbox, but it is all nail polish! Upon joining, you take a quiz to determine which type of maven you are, and then each month, you get a box of nail polishes perfect for you!
After taking the quiz, it was determined that I am Classic with a Twist, which describes me pretty well, I'd say. My intro box was wrapped so nicely!
Two colors, a cuticle cream, and some fun little pots of nail sparkle, for fun nights out!
Then my January box arrived, and I received three more colors (on the right), a spectacular hand and cuticle stick, and some fun hair bands.
On the left are two other polishes, I bought them to send to my sister.
I haven't mailed them yet...hope she isn't reading this right now ;)
This color is called Jodie.
They're all girls names...I'm just waiting for them to have one called Lexi ;)
I love this hand creme, it is just fabulous. It has a wonderful light scent, and is not thick and sticky, like some hand cremes can be. I keep it next to my bed, as part of my nightly routine!
If you're a nail polish fan, I suggest you consider joining Julep and becoming a maven! I just got an email saying that my February box has shipped, so I can't wait to see what they have in store for me this month! They do all sorts of specials, sales and such. Another friend who has been a maven for several months mentioned that sometimes they have little packages where you can buy a necklace and a polish together, something like that! So, so fun.
So, join! You'll love it!
Are you a fan of painting your nails?
